The first dance – after bridal party introductions or after cutting of the cake?

Should we have the first dance after the bridal party introductions or after the cutting of the cake? This is one of those questions that brides ask while they are planning their wedding.

While it is entirely proper to do it either way, there are pros and cons to having your first dance after the bridal party introductions. The pros being that your guests are already focused on you after the bridal party introduction, and this is a dramatic time to have your first dance while all your guests are still present. The cons being that this is one of the highlights of the reception, and then you are going to stop all the excitement to sit down andĀ  have dinner. Many guests will think that they have already seen you dance so they may leave at the end of dinner.

When you save the first dance until after dinner, this is the time to engage your guests in your reception celebration. The first dance will be followed usually by the father/daughter dance, the mother/dance, and then an all dance number which kicks off the dancing for the evening!

Remember it is your choice and the bride should always have things in the manner she would like them on her wedding day!

First Dance

When should you cut the wedding cake?

This is a question that brides ask me all the time (so do their mothers)! This is really up to the bride and groom.

However, the current trend is to cut the cake about 10 to 15 minutes after the toast. This works out great because then the cutting of the cake is an extension of dinner, and this is customary with weddingsThe cuttingof the cake that the bride and groom are the first to eat a piece of cake!

It is also the trend to pick out a song for the cutting of the cake. We have suggestions on our Music Express facebook page.

In the past, a couple of decades ago the cutting of the cake would occur about 30-45 minutes after dinner and the first dance.

It is really your decision how you would like to handle this.

 

 

 

Beautiful Monterey Wedding on February 20, 2013

Last night we performed at a beautiful Monterey Wedding! The ceremony was on the golfcourse of the Blackhore Bayonet Golf Course which is on the CSU Monterey Bay campus. The view during the ceremony was breathtaking. The ocean was brilliantly blue with the sun beginning to set as the bridal party, and then the bride walked down the golf course which is populated with Cypress trees and a lush green lawn.

Following the ceremony we all had a gourmet dinner in the clubhouse with the bridal party being announced, the best man and the maid of honor giving a toast, followed by all the customary events.

The rest of the night was spent dancing, and everyone had a great time! The bridal party was especially energetic!

Desination Weddings – Monterey – Carmel – San Franciso – Pismo Beach

This morning I was driving along the coastline of California; specifically I was on Highway 1 in the Carmel Higlands just south of Monterey and Carmel. The coastline has dramatic cliffs, and I was thinking to myself this hasĀ  to be one of the most beautiful places on earth! The oceas was a beautiful turquoise blue, and it was so clean. The sun was shining, and of course the birds were singing!

The meeting I had today was with a bride who is getting married there in the spring. It is going to be a beautiful backyard wedding at a gorgeious house with the view below.

We were going over the details of her big day, and we were talking about the beautiful setting she would have for her wedding.

The timeline was a big concern for everyone involved. We discussed the timeline, and we came up with a great plan for her wedding!
